I think this is a green lynx spider. Its my first time seeing one. I found it on my kid’s sunflower. I am kind of new at this.

Hi Chris,
Thanks for doing the research to identify the Green Lynx Spider in your wonderful photograph.  Green Lynx Spiders are our own favorite spiders despite their habit of waiting on blossoms for pollinating insects like the Bee that has been captured by your individual.  Once, many years ago, we witnessed a Green Lynx Spider jump a foot from a rose that it was perched upon in an attempt to catch a passing butterfly.  Though the spider missed its mark, it was impressive nonetheless.
